A central mystery in the middle act of 52 was the true identity of Supernova. Was it Superman? Superboy? Someone new?
Of course, Booster Gold fans were never at a loss, and neither was Ralph Dibny, better known as the world-famous Elongated Man!
Dibny was the first (and only!) to deduce Supernova's identity in 52 Week 31. Out-thinking a man with access to all of time and space was one of the last achievements in Dibny's celebrated career and also one of his finest.

One day, we will tell our grandchildren that we used to read comic books printed on paper about a character named Booster Gold. They'll probably look at us like we're making things up.
Last week's poll question: What do Booster Gold fans have to give thanks for in 2013? (44 votes)

2.) There's a rumor going around that DC wants to start producing more low budget movies about B-list heroes.

For the month of November, EvilGeeks.com spotlighted famous bromances in pop culture. They saved the best until nearly last, featuring Blue Beetle and Booster Gold on November 29.
Ted Kord was a timid genius and Jon Carter a boorish blowhard, but that didn't stop them from bonding on and off the job.
Personally, I wouldn't describe Booster as a "boorish blowhard," but I suspect that's largely a case of semantics. In any event, it's good to see the Blue and Gold highlighted alongside other famous bromances, like Woody and Buzz Lightyear, C3P0 and R2D2, and Holmes and Watson. That's some good company!
